Ohio Public Interest Environmental Law Conference

Dear University of Akron School of Law Student Affairs:

Last year, Akron’s School of Law shared information with its students, faculty, and alumni regarding the Ohio Environmental Council’s first annual Ohio Public Interest Environmental Law Conference. On September 13, 2019, the Ohio Environmental Council is hosting the second annual conference offering attorneys 4.5 hours of CLE Credit. The conference’s theme is “Environmental Equity and Justice for All.” 

We want to ensure that many Ohio attorneys and law students learn of this opportunity to learn about environmental justice and its legal implications, so we would love to partner with University of Akron School of Law’s student affairs or events team to advertise the Conference to current law students, as well as the Akron School of Law’s alumni across Ohio.

Information about the conference is available on our website:  https://theoec.org/opielc/registration/

Let us know if you have any questions, and thank you for your consideration.

AKC’s Companion Animal Law Writing Contest

My name is Emily Holmes, and I work in the Government Relations department at the American Kennel Club. We just launched our ‘Companion Animal Law Writing Contest’ (www.writeaboutanimallaw.com) for law students,  and I was wondering if it would be possible to help us publicize the contest to your students. This year’s contest focuses on two questions, the first one is state legislature’s animal control and enforcement laws’ bond-for-care provisions, and the second one is on fraudulent claims of emotional support and service animals.  Please let me know what further information you need from me. I appreciate your help with this. Have a nice day.

CQE Clinic Volunteer Training – Thursday, September 12th, 5:00pm – 6:30pm

Our next free Certificate of Qualification for Employment (CQE) clinic is Saturday, September 14, 2019!  We’re very excited to be providing opportunities for ex-offenders in Summit County to take a step toward gaining employment and independence!

We are looking for students to volunteer from approximately 8-12pm on Saturday, September 14, 2019. The clinic will be held at the Ohio Means Jobs Center, 1040 Tallmadge Ave, Akron, OH 44310. The time you volunteer can be applied toward your graduation requirement as pro bono limited means hours.

There will be a mandatory volunteer training on Thursday, September 12, from 5:00pm-6:30pm for first timers. Location of the training will be announced next week. The time you are at training will count towards your pro bono limited means hours as well. For those who have completed the training once before, you are more than welcome to attend the training for a refresher. However, you may not count the training towards your pro bono limited means hours again. 

If you’re interested in volunteering or have any questions, please e-mail Janelle at  jmw376@zips.uakron.edu.  You can also learn more about the clinic at our website: http://www.uakron.edu/law/clinical/cqe-clinic.dot.
